It does this…  and this… and this…

One of the biggest differences between using a virtual movie studio like Moviestorm and making machinima with a game engine is the sheer versatility of what you can do,  Most games, with the exception of things like The Sims, are limited to a few characters and environments. As a result, most games are suited to a very limited range of movie types. Yes, you can make a music video or a political documentary with Halo or World of Warcraft, but you’ll probably end up with a parody. While The Sims has a huge selection of contemporary costumes and suburban environments, you’d be hard pressed to make an action movie with it.

However, rather than blather on about all the different things Moviestorm can do, let us just show you four very different movies that arrived in the last 24 hours.

First up, this isn’t a movie as such, it’s just a demo of a new free kitchen mod. We’re right in Sims territory here.

Next, here’s a trailer for an action movie. It’s got cars, trains, guys with guns, and New York city. Very much GTA type stuff, but more North American gangster and less ghetto.

Then we’ve got a comedy sketch. It’s simple stuff, and also in a domestic setting, but it’s got the kind of animation that most games don’t do.

Lastly, we have a very Cure-like music video featuring zombies and more.

This is just a small sampling of what people are making with Moviestorm. We’ve had cop shows, alien invasions, dystopian visions, political rants, cartoons and completely surreal art house movies. It’s one of the things that makes it exciting to be part of this: we never know what you’re going to come up with.

Keep on surprising us!

This is one of the things that really appealed to me when I was shopping around for a different platform to use for movies. Moviestorm has incredible versatility, and is much easier to use (and better looking) then similar programs like that iWhatever thing.

It is an ingenious idea, and watching it evolve over the last year has really made me even more excited about it and what I can do. Keep up the great work!
